Say What Now? Ryan Reynolds to Play Pikachu in Live-Action Pokémon Movie ‘Detective Pikachu’

Ryan Reynolds has been tapped to star in Legendary’s live-action Pokémon movie.

The film is called ‘Detective Pikachu’ and Ryan will play the lead — Pikachu.

Now, if we remember correctly Pikachu doesn’t say anything other than ‘Pika Pika!’ in a squeaky voice…so we’re not sure why Ryan’s casting was necessary.

The movie is based on a 2016 Japanese video game that requires players to solve mysteries with the help of Pikachu dressed like Sherlock Holmes.

We have so many questions, but at least the film is getting buzz.
